Admissions Overview

Because of the rigorous nature of graduate programs, the online Master's in Sport Management* program at the University of Kansas requires all applicants to prove they are able to succeed in the program by meeting a standardized set of admissions requirements.

Our admissions process looks at your academic history, your career goals and how you intend to use this degree moving forward, along with your resume and two recommendations from those who can attest to your professional or academic experience.

Whether you're an international applicant or currently enlisted in the military, we at KU want to help simplify your admissions process, so you know what you need to submit and when you need to submit it by, with no confusion in the meantime!

*This program is a Master of Science in Education (M.S.E.) degree in health, sport management, and exercise science with an emphasis in sport management.
